The Collection of Virginia and Stuart Peltz

View Lots

Virginia and Stuart Peltz, collectors with longtime roots in Pennsylvania’s Bucks County, began amassing their impressive collection of works by Pennsylvania Impressionists in the 1980s, after falling in love with the pastoral charm of the New Hope region. Well before the current market demand for such works, the Peltzes were buying paintings by Pennsylvania-based artists from Morgan Colt and Fern Coppedge to Edward Redfield and Daniel Garber. Either approached by, or buying directly from the top dealers in their field, the Peltzes didn't collect with an agenda, and ultimately purchased what they liked as long as the painting they coveted fit a narrative, or related to their daily surroundings. Very involved within the local community, Virginia and Stuart made a point to make their collection available, and lent their most precious gems whenever possible to the most relevant museums, including the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia, and the James A. Michener Museum in Doylestown.
